Dance of the Mexicans

Each town in Guatemala has its saint with its corresponding festival and in his honor on that particular day (some festivals can last several days) processions are organized, marimba players are hired and folkloric dances dating from the time of the conquest are realized. In saint’s honor locals drink, light rockets, incense is offered and the saint is promised eternal fidelity in the prayers of the people.
